Parks to upgrade septic system


The Point Roberts Park and Recreation District has approved a bid to upgrade the septic system at the community center, aimed at facilitating expanded use of the kitchen facilities. Currently, health department regulations restrict kitchen use to twice-weekly senior lunches and emergency shelter situations.

Local contractor Ken Calder, who installed the septic system three and a half years ago, submitted the sole bid for the upgrade. While the system meets residential standards, additional infrastructure is necessary to comply with regulatory guidelines.

Calder’s bid, totaling $22,848 and encompassing all required improvements, was unanimously accepted by the parks board. Additionally, an estimate from V Squared Electric of Lynden for $11,650 was approved for electrical enhancements critical to the new septic system and general facility upgrades, including additional outlets and switches in the dining area. This figure includes $1,750 specifically allocated for septic-related electrical work.
